Released: August 2009

Although it climbed the chart slowly, and only hit the Top 40 for a fortnight, Mumford’s debut single from their debut album is perhaps their best known, and certainly their best. If anyone had told us in spring 2009 we’d be bellowing along in unison to a banjo-plucked stomper about regrets in relationships we’d have laughed you all the way to Johnny Borrell’s gaff. But what do you know, sometimes the best bands are those that give us what we never knew we wanted. (TC)
